What: Shares of pump maker Sauer-Danfoss
So what: Regional outlet Meed reported the news this morning, which appears to have ignited not just shares of Sauer-Danfoss but also Flowserve
Now what: Early trading had Sauer-Danfoss up more than 10%, but the stock has since settled, up about 6% as of this writing. Yet, even with the rally, investors are paying just 0.76 times sales and five times trailing earnings to own a slice of the business. Those numbers are only fair if you think analysts are wrong and Sauer-Danfoss won't grow earnings 14% annually over the next five years. What's your take? Would you buy shares of Sauer-Danfoss at current prices? Please weigh in using the comments box below.
